TerMine Plugin for Protégé


NaCTeM today released its TerMine Plugin for Protégé. This plugin, developed in response to requests and subsequent requirements from ontology engineers, uses text mining tools to extract candidate terms from a corpus of text and provides an interface for rapidly bringing these terms into an OWL ontology. It uses the TerMine term extraction tool provided by NaCTeM to extract concepts from text. The plugin accesses TerMine via a Web Service over the Internet. Simon Jupp and Matthew Horridge of the School of Computer Science, University of Manchester, developed this plugin for NaCTeM.

The plugin can be downloaded from
